Lisa and Bo, oil

Today we’re looking at the portfolio of Claudette Webb. Claudette is an artist currently living and working in Hunstville, Alabama. In her art she uses oil paints, as well as pencil crayons to create soft realistic portraits of people in their day-to-day lives.

 

The style that Claudette uses lends to her work an interesting tension between photorealism, and a softer, more lenient way of painting. The result is…

Some artists shy away from creating distinct bodies of work. Worried that their fans may get confused or that they won't seem consistent. As artists we are born to explore, so why not develop a variety of methods and mediums within your practice? Here are 4 bonuses of developing different bodies of artwork within your art practice.

 

1. The freedom of exploration and experimentation. You can try switching to a different medium…

Today on studio Sunday, have a look at a photo of Jean Giraud, aka Moebius, at work in his home studio. Moebius is well known for his work in comic books and graphic novels, often telling strange and esoteric science-fiction tales.

 

As a comic book artist, Giraud’s studio would have included a drawing table, pots of ink in various colours, and of course, the requisite bookshelf packed with other graphic novels and the work of his…

Three Bees, watercolour

Wa Truong was born in Vietnam and came to the united states with his family in the late 70’s. Having begun to paint at the age of 9, Truong took up the technique of traditional Chinese watercolour painting, and has honed his skills in the art ever since. Truong’s works are beautiful examples of the results that a well-trained artist can produce from a medium that is often tricky to control.

Things get out of hand with managing image files and then when you need to send a gallery a jpeg of an art piece they are interested in you can't seem to find it. We would all rather be at the studio, so we tend to stop drop and roll with the rest of the artist-life's tasks. 

 

It hard to say where you might fall with organizing your computer so here is a little quiz to help you shed some light on the situation.

 

1. The last time…

Rapids, dowelling and fabric

Today we feature the textile-based works of Anne Garwood Roney. Anne uses a variety of fabrics, as well as rope, twine, and small objects such as buttons and beads in her creative textile artworks. I like the contrast in Anne’s body of work between using highly processed, fine fabrics, and materials taken straight from the great outdoors such as reeds and gourds. Born in Toronto, Anne recently moved back to…

In this collection of works, I decided to focus on Three-dimensional art - that is, sculptural works, pottery, and other art that goes beyond the canvas, paper, or mural wall. Some of the artists featured in this collection produce furniture and other functional objects such as vases, bowls , and dishes, as well as abstract and figurative scultptural work. These interesting, tactile artworks can easily be present in a…

mixed media

Katrina Alexy produces work that stands in a space between public art, and art for the gallery space – all while asking the viewer what exactly the difference is between public art and “private” art.


Suspended Nest, found wood

Katrina employs many different techniques in her work. On her website you can find examples of painting, collage, and sculpture. Much of Katrina’s work focuses on natural forms for public art – eggs,…

Pink & Gold #4, mixed media

Emma Lehto uses her artwork as a typographic exploration into books, everyday objects, and seemingly innocuous materials. Emma’s work has a particular kind of softness to it that comes out in her use of fabrics, floral patterns and delicate sewing techniques. I enjoy how she offsets this quality with overt subject matter and images, such as in her profanity laced pillowcases, and delicate sewn-text works.

Our artist for this Studio Sunday is Roy Lichtenstein. Born in Manhattan, New York, in 1923, Lichtenstein is best known as a painter, and as part of the pop-art movement of the 1960’s. Lichtenstein’s works reference the popular medium of comic books, as well as advertisements from the era.

 

These artworks were far from simples copies of comic-book pages, however. Lichtenstein’s work looked critically at the industrial and societal…

Drone Desert, sharpie pen and microns on paper

Artist and illustrator Sean Bernhardt was born in Long Branch, New Jersey. His works reflect a love of beach and surf culture.

 

Sean’s illustrations are at once minimal and intricate – high contrast, black and white line art featuring recurring motifs and text. Images of palm trees, skulls and skeletons create an interesting juxtaposition between lighthearted surf-and-sun imagery and…
